Thank you all so so much for all of your support on my last blog post. You have no idea how much your words mean to me. Every comment felt like a warm hug.
After getting my Day 30 DEXA scan and proving to myself that I CAN indeed build muscle in a healthy, happy, un-deprived way, I felt like I was floating in clouds full of ultimate satisfaction. Waves of emotion overcame me as I thought back to WHY I started this 90 Day Journey. I wanted to reclaim my unhealthy bikini competitor past. Honestly, I can’t believe it’s happening. I really had no idea if my body would react the way I wanted it to because I’ve put it through a lot over the past 10 years.
With 60 more days to go, I am so excited to see what will happen!
Anyway, here is an update to both my new workout plan and my meal plan.
Since last month worked out so well, in general I am not changing TOO much.
Month 2 Workout Plan:
I kept some of my faves and introduced new moves as well. Last month was all about getting used to the motion, so it featured higher reps that stayed the same with each set. This month, I am focused on lifting even heavier. So with each set, you’ll notice the reps decreasing so that I can increase my weight. For cardio, I am keeping my 30 min runs 4 days of the week, and making Day 3 and Day 7 both hikes to help with booty building. I’m doing some intense inclines on these hikes so my heart rate gets up and stays up in a very similar range to run days.
Oh, also I changed my rest day to Day 4 since I was noticing that naturally, Thursday was my most tired day of all. I am also making it an active stretch and recovery day!
Week 6 Meal Plan:
When I like something – be it music or food or whatever – I just listen to the same song or eat the same food over and over and over again until one day I realize that I’ve had enough. Right now, I’m Mariah Carey-ing and rice caking 🙂
These are my rice cakes with avocado, pickled cucumbers, Everything but the Elote seasoning from Trader Joe’s, and egg white with LOTS of sriracha, I am ADDICTED. SO GOOD.
Ya know, I was going to have the same meal twice but then I thought maybeeee I should add a little variety. So this is chicken avo rice cakes with tomatoes. Not pictured is all the sriracha I also smothered all over this meal.
Instead of having 2 separate meals of protein pancakes, I decided to combine it all into one major stack of supersculpt pancake heaven! I also added blueberries and peanut butter this week and OMG this meal is DIVINE.
I forgot to shoot the salad, but honestly, it isn’t that interesting looking. It is exactly as you read it above! The mustard with monkfruit is my version of honey mustard and I dip my roasted butternut squash fries in there!
Oh and if you’re wondering what sweet pickled cucumbers are – it’s a homemade sweet pickle!
I just marinate sliced cocktail cucumbers in rice vinegar, monkfruit sugar, and salt (all to taste) and just let it sit overnight in the fridge. They taste better and better the longer they sit! So crunchy and full of flavor! It’s my version of those sweet cucumbers you can get at a Japanese restaurant.

Okay and this is officially my new favorite pose 😀
My thighs look crazy! They have grown so much over the past month! I honestly cannot believe. I wonder what I will look like in 60ish days!? Regardless, I am having so much fun being focused on my Why. I feel full of purpose right now and I am so grateful that you’re here with me on this journey.
